Amazing night at — of all places — Miller Park. Much will be said about this night, and personally, I’m elated at the moment. But in the interest of getting out of the house, I’m going to post the audio highlights c/o WGN Radio, Pat Hughes, and Ron Santo. Yes, The Chicago Cubs, on the back of Carlos Zambrano — who nearly no-hit the Astros in the past — pitched his first career no hitter, the first no hitter by a Cubs since Milt Pappas in 1972.
Listen to the call of the 27th out:
Holy Shit Carlos!
And the Magic Number is 7!
Piniella, Zambrano talk to the media:
Game Highlights (WGN Radio):
Zambrano spoke to WGN TV’s Len Kasper after the game and according to the Sun Times, said:
“I felt good,” Zambrano said. “I think the rest helped me out a lot, and I was able to command my fastball today and all my pitches were working great today. I was watching the gun in the first inning and it said 99, 98 I said let’s get it on, challenge the hitter and be aggressive.
Geovany [Soto] just told me, ‘Just come on. Let’s go you and do it.’ The pitching coach [Larry Rothschild] in the ninth inning ‘use your leg,’ and that helped.”
